I'm trying to think like an "owner" of my life - no excuses, I'm responsible for my future - corporate life is an assault on self esteem.

Big congratulations on your retirement! Well done, it all sounds so right to me.
So we'll see what comes next. Immediate goals are physical fitness - currently woeful - and ways to involve myself in society that add value to the life of others (ideally in a way that adds cash flow to my life as well).
Any update on this part?

My ideal setup is going to be some sort of low cost home base, with about 50% of the time spent on the road. I need to think that through further . . . Maybe extended stays in different countries mixed in with long trips home to visit close family, and/or buy a very cheap condo or trailer in the US. Perhaps periodically mix in short term freelance work projects.
Sounds like a good idea. Indeed, I also thought about this setup in the FIRE phase. Then you can have both: stability and freedom. I like to have a place which I call home, especially near friends and family. But also I like to have the freedom to do and try things somewhere else e.g. traveling... I guess that setup supports the P and J of the personality types of the MBTI. I guess a 100% P or J would have different setup e.g. vanlife or homeownership. However, I am looking forward to hear more retirement stories from you. :-)

Great job Trailblazer. You are the poster child for Jacob's five year plan, give or take a few years.

Can live on a dollar a day. Sounds like a joke that begins with "What does Elon Musk and an ugly stripper have in common."
